reading I did led me to believe that gnus reading from offlineimap's
Maildir would break things when the mail sync'd BACK to my IMAP
(Exchange 2003) server, so I am running a local Courier IMAP server
(just Debian's default install of it) that I use nnimap to suck the
mail from - i.e. offlineimap sync's my Exchange mail to ~/Maildir, and
Courier IMAP re-serves ~/Maildir to gnus via nnimap. Not as ugly as
you might think...

Key lines when setting up your .offlineimaprc to talk to Exchange:

[Repository Remote]
nametrans = lambda foldername: re.sub('^INBOX.?', '.', foldername)

This will make sure it syncs it to a structure that Courier
likes. Otherwise, it "just works" which is nice (although that above
line took me about 2 hours to figure out - python is not my strong
